AS DIANA O SEES IT
Where passion and purpose meet pragmatism
The blog, the articles, the advice, the Q&As, the opinion pieces...
Diana O's upcoming memoir is a tale of transformation, chronicling her journey from addiction and despair to healing and self-discovery. Set against the backdrops of Monaco, Switzerland, France, Newport and New York, her story is a mix of global experiences. Diana confronts and conquers challenges like attachment disorder, a family torn between class divisions, and 'rich mom-poor dad' household. She battles alcoholism, love and sex addiction, and shame. More than just a personal account, it stands as a beacon of hope for those navigating their own paths to recovery."
Get pragmatic support to tackle life's hurdles, staying true to your purpose and passion-- sober.

I began my career as a freelance journalist for Newport This Week, RI, and then spent 17 years in Switzerland writing for local press. Along the way, I cofounded GstaadLife, started a memoir and blogs such as Life in the Swiss Alps and As Diana O Sees It. I also became an ICF certified coach and started to study habits and the underlying motivations of human behavior, continuing the legacy of my great-grand uncle Charles Sanders Peirce.
Today, based in Newport, New York City, Gstaad, and Costa Rica, I work both locally and globally via my company Oehrli Coaching & Communications. I also serve as the Executive Director for the Gruben Charitable Foundation.
In my free time I train Shotokan Karate, play the piano, and travel the world.
LIFE IN THE SWISS ALPS
Mahatma Ghandi and Steve Jobs understood the value of taking their meetings outside. Let's talk about your business while your brain is operating at its best: outside in the fresh air and while you're moving.
In a world increasingly dominated by digital noise, I've chosen to walk a different path, aligning my actions with the principles I advocate in my writings. I'm currently undertaking a personal journey – an experiment in unplugging – to cultivate a more mindful and genuine way of living.
This means I've reduced my digital footprint. You won't find me on most social media platforms. My presence is limited and intentional, with only a minimal profile on LinkedIn. This choice reflects my commitment to living more authentically, away from the constant buzz of online interactions.
